Hi, it can happen if SDSE couldn't find the path to Metal Foundry or access its files. It's possible that some entries are missing in Windows, in that case running the Metal Foundry installer or removing/adding it in the SD3 settings should make it work. I'll send you a mail with details to fix this.

Make sure to install the latest version of SDSE in case you currently have an old version or if the kit you're exporting from Metal Foundry is built from pieces loaded from other SDX packs.

Here's a new version updated for the 1.32.4 OS and a separate version for the DrumIt Three.

DrumIt Five with OS 1.32.4
DrumIt Three with OS 1.32.4

Here's what I would do, it usually works for everyone after this:
- uninstall all versions of Java from the computer
- install Java 64-bit
- optional: click on C:\Program Files\SDSE\dsoundtool64.bat, if DSoundTool opens it should work with SDSE.

edit: the fix above worked for IslandDJ

A new version of SDSE is available

  • Samples: option to fit the maximum limits by removing samples evenly instead of checking samples (to minimize gaps in velocities)
  • SD3: fix to export kit pieces from a different SDX when loaded in a kit that doesn't contain any pieces from the current SDX

Great! thanks for the feedback :)

Hi, did it produce .dsnd files when exporting with SDSE? It shouldn't be necessary to load wav files in the 2box Editor when exporting VST sounds, you should find .dsnd files in the "SDSE Sounds" folder.

If you found .wav files in the destination folder it's possible that Java is not installed and the sounds were not converted to .dsnd. This should fix it:
- uninstall all versions of Java from the computer.
- install Java 64-bit

I would check the dsnd files you created from wav using the 2box Editor by inspecting them with DSoundTool or playing them in the 2box Editor or DKit Manager (click from left to right on pad buttons to preview the different layers). If you find the same delay it's possible that they were created using wav files containing all layers and it would explain the 1 second silence. When using the Render button instead of the Export button that's normally used to export from VSTs it produces a wav file for each articulation, that can be edited if needed or converted to dsnd with the convert button or with DSoundTool. It's possible to use Render to produce individual wav files for each layer by checking "split" in SDSE Options > Render. But if you just want to export from EZ Drummer 2 to the 2box the Export button is the way to go. It should produce dsnd files that can be copied directly to the DrumIt module.

I hope that helps, don't hesitate to send a mail if I can be of any help with my programs.

For addictive drums 2 the mapping is saved with the reaper project so it's important not to change it (and to avoid saving the project when closing reaper). I would close reaper and run the SDSE installer again to make sure the project wasn't modified, it should fix it. I'll send you the map file just in case. Please tell me if it didn't work.

Hello Aad,

There are several kit bank files, make sure to edit the one you use:
DrumItInit.dkit (to restore to factory defaults)
DrumItRub.dkit (rubber heads)
DrumItTrig.dkit (acoustic triggers)

You can press More+Kit for 2 seconds to access the menu to change to a different kit bank.

Is it the same card reader on the laptop and on the PC? Does it do the same if you load the sounds from the SSD or from a different SD card reader?
Did you try disabling the anti virus temporarily?
Did you try unplugging all USB peripherals and closing all other programs? (like an audio configuration program from the default sound device or unplugging the USB DAC even if it's not selected)
Does it work when playing the sounds with DSoundTool or DKit Manager?

Edit: Is there any 5.1 or surround feature on the laptop? If the audio device is set to 5.1 try stereo.

There's a chance if more people request it but the good news is that you can already export from it semi-manually by setting the mapping to Superior Drummer in Perfect Drums. It's possible to export this way from any drum VST even if it's not supported, it's described in the SDSE manual in "Exporting from unsupported VSTs" here. I'll send you a message with more details.

A new version of SDSE is available

This version adds support for Steven Slate Drums 5.

Hi Matthias, it's coming very soon!
